Description GLSAMaker/CVETool Bot gentoo-dev 2013-09-11 01:52:53 UTC
CVE-2013-4243 (http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2013-4243):
  Heap-based buffer overflow in the readgifimage function in the gif2tiff tool
  in libtiff 4.0.3 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
  service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted height and
  width values in a GIF image.

This one is bug 486590. So lets keep this bug only for CVE-2013-4243. Just added to confusion.
Comment 4 Aaron Bauman Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2016-03-05 08:09:09 UTC
@arches, please stabilize >=media-libs/tiff-4.0.5

@maintainer(s), once stabilization is complete please remove vulnerable versions, <media-libs/tiff-4.0.3

> @arches, please stabilize >=media-libs/tiff-4.0.5

4.0.6 or 4.0.5?
Comment 6 Aaron Bauman Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2016-03-06 10:02:17 UTC
@arches, please stabilize =media-libs/tiff-4.0.6
Comment 7 Aaron Bauman Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2016-03-06 13:50:52 UTC
I wouldn't recommend changing the bug title to reflect <media-libs/tiff-4.0.6 as it implies that all versions less than that are vulnerable which is not the case here.  This can be applied to most bugs, as often unstable versions are available that mitigate certain vulnerabilities.

@arches, does this titling make it easier for you to track or use various tools?

The remaining arches a not officially "stable" then maybe they should not block the subsequent "CVE" process here :/
Comment 17 Aaron Bauman Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2016-07-09 13:30:13 UTC
Removing unstable arches from CC.

@maintainer(s), please cleanup vulnerable versions.
